politifact looked at earlier this years -- something nancy pelosi put out -- that obama had increased the that the lease of any president and last six or seven presidents. it was all over facebook and exploded among democrats. i ended up giving that four pinocchio's and that became a viral thing from the other side. also looked at graphic elements that either campaign has put on there website. assertions of fact there that were wanting in both cases -- >> we try to do a lot of those things on facebook because the same way that chain e-mail's became a medium for transmittal of false information, the facebook posts that we called jpeg propaganda, especially during the occupy movement, became a way to spread propaganda. much of it inaccurate. it is tough. what we have to go through every day, this gets to the challenge -- any given day, there are probably 50 or 60 or 100 things we could check. we have for fact checkers. we have to be selective and lately, we focused almost entirely on the presidential campaign messages. but there are interesting senate races we have been unable to fact c
mr. or president obama for another four years. >> what, if it's over 150? >> i think if it's over 150, you're going to see him a whole lot for the week after that, talking about jobs and how he's creating jobs, yeah. >> um-hum. >> i know that doesn't make you happy. we can pile that on your unhappiness for the -- >> you're just saying either/or, you're not predicting what's going to happen with jobs, right? >> well i've seen as high as 130, as low as 100. i think it's a little too early to talk about it. i think it will be on the low side of that range, but that's why i think under 100 is bad and above 150 would be great. >> the bad numbers really haven't hurt him recently so i don't know if the good number -- i don't know at this point and what's the participation rate going to do? how are they going to play around with that this time, going under eight by the election? >> well, if participation continues to fall off, then yeah. >> right. >> unfortunately that's a pretty wonky, geeky conversation to have. >> doesn't matter if it's under eight, if he can claim it's the same as when he
. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility.
and it will limit the upside for next year. >> is there a point at which you see obama in the polls and you say actually now i believe that we are going to get the tax hikes and the market should fall? there must be a watershed quite soon as we head towards particularly what happens in the house and the senate. >> our focus has been on the senate. we think that's what's going to mostly influence the outcome. i hope there's appetite to see the rates low. i don't see a benefit from raising them. i would call a coin toss on the senate outcome. but wiser minds will see the wisdom of helping the fed in its efforts to stimulate asset prices by not onerously raising taxes on the most important asset class other than homes. >> have you actually calculated a number? you said it would give back some of the rally. but is there a number or a percentage? >> 12-month price target is 1,500. we've written in our research that 1,600 would be a reasonable 2013 end. i need to see an acceleration in global growth. >> contingent on both, not just the tax issue? >> both. somewhere between 1,500 and 1,600. >> david,
tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give diplomacy time to work. we still do have time. the president has been clear and consistently clear in his determination to absolutely prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. there's no doubt about that whatsoever. >> but the leader of israel benjamin netanyahu doesn't say we've been very clear. he keeps calling us to lay out a deliberate red line here. there are people here in this world, key allies, that do
